St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

I remembered late this morning that I had a dozen cupcakes in my freezer with st. patrick’s day paper liners. I had to think of something besides just white or green frosting. I looked inside my pantry and found a jar of white frosting, marshmallows large and small, green sprinkles, green chocolate discs and green food dye.

This is what I came up with and how I got to this progression.
First I thought I could just cut the large marshmallows into thirds and put the sticky side down into the sprinkles. They were ok but thought too much white showing.
Then I thought I would cut up the marshmallows into thirds

Dip them into green chocolate and make little chocolate stems.

I had plenty of frosting left over so I thought I would microwave it for 30 to 45 seconds, dye it green and dip the cut up marshmallows into the frosting.
Then cut up one of the discs into stems and dip them as well. The frosting sets up very quickly and smoothly.

Also tried it with mini marshmallows…

They will not win any awards but I had fun coming up with new creations with things on hand. Do think they look a little better off camers!!

Which one do you like best??
